Anger over Whittlesey's supermarkets 'foul-up'

Anger has been growing in a town where two Tesco and Sainsbury's have been given permission to build on the same road.

People living in Whittlesey say the Cambridgeshire town is not big enough to support two major supermarkets.

John Elworthy, editor of the local newspaper, the Cambs Times, described the issue as a "monumental foul-up".

Fenland council said the planning process was ongoing.
